Sitcom by David McGimpsey
Book DescriptionImplicating extremes from Coriolanus to Karen Carpenter, David McGimpsey's Sitcom is both serious poetry and a work of comedy. Where Timon of Athens meets Shania Twain, that's where you'll find Sitcom. Mischievous, generous and side-splittingly funny, this collection of wry soliloquies and sonnets begins with a milestone birthday and finds itself in demi-mondes as varied as the offices of university regents and the basic plot arc of Hawaii Five-O -- offering, along the way, a sincere contemplation of mortality and the fashion sense of Mary Tyler Moore. In between, you'll find Auden, Arthur Carlson, oper, Girls Gone Wild and the lead from Suddenly Susan's turn as a creative writing student. Unembarrassed by its literary allusions or its hi-lo hybridity, Sitcom's strategic and encompassing voice is prepared for each comedic disaster and is, somehow, always ready for next week's episode.
